Purpose and Benefit

How does it work?

Microfluidic channel carriers can become expensive and complicated. On the other hand, microfluidic chips are sensitive and just for single use. E.g. diagnostic stuff for routine use typically features hot embossed microplastics, a procedure which initially requires expensive casting machines and layout specific casting tools.
